Home > Study Abroad in Iceland Iceland The land of fire and ice, Iceland's dramatic scenery combines the power of volcanoes with the frozen beauty of glaciers. This is your chance to explore the world of the Norse bards and the Vikings. Travel North! Contrary to its name, Iceland isn't terribly cold all the time! Iceland’s climate is considered (subpolar) oceanic. Thanks to the currents of the Atlantic Ocean, Iceland actually experiences far less chilly temperatures than the name would suggest. Reykjavik, located on the southeastern coast, doesn’t experience the same temperature extremes and snowfall that regions to the north forecast. And let's not forget about the incredible culture! While a remembrance of traditional culture certainly remains a major facet of Iceland's identity, Iceland’s most popular cultural export is, in fact, music. With artists like Bjork, Sigur Ros, and Of Mice and Men garnering international plaudits for their work, the influence of Nordic folk music on modern pop, jazz, and rock is undeniable.
